Dean Patty Roberts, St. Mary’s University, on Online Legal Education

When will shifts to remote working bring changes to legal education as well? St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas recently received American Bar Association (ABA) approval to host a cohort of its JD students in a fully online environment. Even before the arrival of the COVID pandemic in early 2020, other US law schools had moved bits and pieces of their programs online. St. Mary’s is the first school to receive accreditation for online delivery of a complete JD.

In this episode of The Future Law Podcast, host Mike Madison talks with Patty Roberts, Dean of St. Mary’s Law, about that school’s plans and about how she and her colleagues navigated their proposal through design and accreditation processes.
